The run when we saved a dog
I have been really bad about blogging lately. So here is some catch up. Last week was a "recovery week" I ran 8 on Monday, 8 on Thursday, 8 on Friday and 9.5 on Saturday. And on Saturday we actually got to run outside. It was heaven!!!
AND we saved a dog...ok that might be a little dramatic. But at mile 3 a dog started following us. He would run past us pee on a bush then wait for us. He wasn't exactly running with us but he wasn't leaving us either. He ran by us for about 3.5 miles. Once we got into a residential area we decided to catch him so we could call the number on his tags. We had to sit on the curb for a few minutes to get him close enough to catch. Then we carried him to a few houses looking for some help. The lady who finally helped us didn't want to hold on to him and find his owners (even though she had a dog) but she let us use her phone to call them. Then we waited on the street corner until they got there. It was a bit crazy and added quite a bit of extra time to our run - but we saved a dog and got to run outside so I'm not complaining. We did 9.5 miles total.
I am really loving the 360 fit class and can tell a difference in how I feel and look. I know it's making me a stronger runner and I'm getting some definition in my upper body. Now I just really need a tan!!
